Q: I bought your book! Why are you asking for more money?
A: First, thank you for your support through purchase of my Through the Seasons Mary Randolph History recipe books! I very much appreciate it. That said, all the money I receive for books go towards producing Vol III and Vol IV of that project, with expenses including research, ingredients, recipe testing, and photography. Now, I’m seeking funding to keep the blog running. And if you would like to subscribe (or donate), I would, of course, be grateful!

Q: When/how can I cancel my subscription?
A: If you have a recurring membership, hit cancel on your account page and your subscription will be cancelled with prorated fees. Otherwise, send me an email and I’ll take care of it.

Q: How will you use the money?
A: My direct business expenses include: Web hosting, software subscriptions, my newsletter’s mailing service, ingredients for recipe testing, and research. With the COVID crisis my lectures, classes in my home, and history dinners have all been canceled for the foreseeable future. However I still need to pay for my mortgage, utilities, and insurance on my farmstead. So right now my project list includes; hatchery purchases of chicks, a pig, animal feed, and help with multimedia, such as my videos and podcasts to share my work online with the many who want to learn how to get through these rough times.
